[3] These different applications call for different aperture coupling properties such as uniform forward and reverse coupling to excite a patch antenna, whereas directivity is an important parameter in a directional coupler.
Five rubber qualities are available for fine-tuning the coupling to various system requirements.
Also, the product is surface treated for dispersibility and coupling to phenolic, epoxy, nylon, melamine and polyurethane.
The torsional flexibility allows the shear coupling to dampen the amplitude of vibrations across the coupling, isolating one shaft from the effects of the other.
Many times a second encoder is atta ched via a single-piece flexible coupling to the q axis drive shaft in order to reduce the effect of q axis error.
Yet, the bellows coupling does provide the highest torque stiffness and lowest lateral radial bearing loads reflected from the flexible coupling to the drive motor and axis mechanism shafts.
